Eugene, OR (KOLD) - A little over a year ago the NCAA released a video ranking the nation's loudest stadiums. At the top of list sat LSU's Death Valley. Right beneath it in second place was Oregon's Autzen Stadium.
One can't be completely sure about the validity of those rankings but it is safe to say that the 54,000 seat football palace ain't a quiet venue by any means. When filled to the brim with Duck faithful, Autzen's acoustics have been known to cause a headache or two. It's so loud in there that the noise may seem inhuman, or at least that's the claim from a Michigan State beat writer who accused Oregon of piping in artificial crowd noise during the Ducks win over the Spartans a few weeks back (Oregon of course denied the claim).
